ROCKVILLE, Md., May 19 (UPI) -- U.S. company RedXDefense announced the global release of its portable trace explosives detection technology.
RedXDefense announced its XPAKi threat-detection technology has been officially launched with the company's i-Module geography-location and data-tracking system and XPAK Spotlight visualization software.
Officials said the global release of the XPAKi is part of an effort to address the evolving requirements of the defense and homeland-security markets in countering terrorist organizations that use roadside bombs and other explosive threats.
"We have long believed in the wide-scale deployment of rugged detectors and the systematic collection and visualization of trace-explosives data as a means for identifying bomb makers and bomb-making facilities," Regina Dugan, RedXDefense chief executive, said in a statement.
"The introduction of the XPAKi is the next step in our commitment to this objective."
